Texas License to Carry Course

As of September 1st, 2021, Constitutional Carry will go into effect in Texas.  There is a lot of responsibility on the gun owner to know and understand these laws. The License to Carry (formerly called concealed handgun license or CHL in Houston, TX) is still an extremely valid and valuable option for gun owners and has benefits beyond carrying your firearm without the LTC.

With this one course, we will equip you with the knowledge of the laws pertaining to carrying a firearm and draw comparisons between the License to Carry and Constitutional Carry options afforded to you as a Texas resident.

This course provides the education and assessment necessary to obtain a Texas License to Carry. It includes the four hours of instruction as mandated by the Texas Department of Public Safety, shooting proficiency, the written test, everything you need to apply for your license with the state, and the confidence to carry. Students are required to pass a firearms proficiency demonstration and a written exam.

PLEASE NOTE: You will not learn how to shoot a handgun in this course. If you are new to handguns, we recommend that you take Handgun 101 prior to this certification. You must be able to demonstrate proficiency with a handgun in order to complete the LTC certification.
